Last week, Bob spoke with former Onion headline writer Joe Garden about the phenomenon of real headlines that sound like Onion headlines. In the interview, Bob asked you all to send us some you find in the media wild. We've gotten some great entries. Entries like these:
London 2012: China has no interest in it and that gives us a chance - (via Cameron McKay)
Area Man Joins Organization Where Nothing Much Ever Happens - (via Todd Nystul)
Beck's new album won't be an album – just sheet music - (via Mike Altman)
The person who submits the best it's-real-but-could-be-an-Onion-headline will receive an On the Media mug. For a certain set of people, you if you're reading this for example, the mug is a status symbol. (Of sorts.)
